In her continuing effort to raise awareness for physical fitness in a battle against childhood obesity, Michelle Obama is releasing a hip hop-inspired album called “Let’s Move.”
The album will likely not feature the first Lady spitting on the mic or anything along those lines, but the 19 track project will feature a cut from Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, who is easily one of the best rappers in the NBA. Other notable artists include Ashanti, DMC from Run DMC, Naledge, Monifah, and legendary rapper Doug E. Fresh.
Yesterday the NBA, entire sports world, and North America as a whole, was talking about NBA center Jason Collins decision to come out as a gay man while his playing career is still going on. For the most part, the response in the media and across social networks, has been exceedingly positive, and Jason himself has said that he is moved by the support.
